There are many forms and sorts of writing: short stories, fiction books, newspaper stories, articles for magazines, blogs, you name it. And within those forms, the styles vary widely as well. It’s interesting to see for instance how much the Dutch newspaper style varies from the American approach.
No matter the form or style however, the best writers have one thing in common: they are purpose driven.
